This second edition offers a practical training guide for college students who serve as leaders, tutors, counselors, or advisors for their peers. This thoroughly revised and updated volume contains a fundamental discussion on student growth and development and provides learning objectives and self-discovery exercises to help student leaders with tasks such as tutoring, student orientation, residence hall advising, crisis intervention, coaching, and more.

Students Helping Students includes:

  • Updates on the most current research and the latest advances in technology

  • A revised model that contains service learning and student retention programs

  • The results of two intervention strategies: the Health Behaviors Assessment and the College Learning Effectiveness Inventory, which focus on the topics of wellness and academic success

  • Descriptive overviews of peer programs addressing sexuality, safety, violence reduction, residence life, online peer connections, and more
